Day 1

Genoa – Arrive in Genoa and Set Out on an Introductory Photogenic Tour

Genoa has an incredible history of maritime power along the Ligurian coast and the Mediterranean Sea. The Navy overtook Pisa for supremacy of the waters and fought established powerhouses such as Venice as well. The city itself contains a nuanced atmosphere that emanates from the large seaport and sparkling shoreline, and the opulent architecture speaks to the republic’s former glory. Your private transfer will meet you at the Genoa Cristoforo Colombo Airport upon your arrival to escort you through the tightly twisting laneways that give a compelling welcome.

The seaside promenade contains Europe’s largest aquarium and the scent of grilled octopus with lemon and garlic drifts out of the chic restaurants. Your guide will meet you in the elegant lobby of your lavish hotel ready to lead you on an introductory tour of Genoa and the photographic techniques you will utilize during your time of exploring the treasures of Liguria. Venture to Santa Maria di Castello, located on Castello Hill, one of the most ancient sites in the city. The port allowed settlements in the region to trade with Phoenicians and Etruscans.

Numerous churches and convents grew around the area between the 12th and 16th-centuries, at the heart of which lies the 12th-century Romanesque church of Santa Maria di Castello. Dominicans converted the church into a convent in the 15th-century and added a beautiful three-story cloister to offer a remarkable view of the water. The frescoed ceilings add another layer of charm to the already enchanting edifice. You will line up your shot in an attempt to frame both the sea and the frescoes for a glorious photo.
